Welcome to website of the Finnish Service Dog Association

What is the Finnish Service Dog Association?

The purpose of the Finnish Service Dog Association is to share information about service dogs and their role and significance for their handlers. We provide facts about the rights of public access for service dog teams, for example their rights of accessing shops, restaurants, hospitals, public transport, and their right to participate in public events with their certified service dog. In addition, the goals of our association include:

  • advocating for the interests of our members;
  • providing a self-training option, thereby easing the   queues of applying for a trained service dog; and
  • seeking to influence national funding bodies in order to include service dogs in public funding.
